To evaluate the limit of sqrt(x-2) as x approaches 5, we substitute 5 into the expression for x. This gives us sqrt(5-2), which simplifies to sqrt(3). Therefore, the limit of sqrt(x-2) as x approaches 5 is sqrt(3).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
